Jill McSheehy - The Beginner's Garden

Hi, I'm Jill and I grow and harvest more than half of the fruits, vegetables, and herbs that my family of four eats all year.

But it wasn't always that way.

Six years ago I planted my very first garden with no experience or know-how. I read every gardening book I could find.  

The fall before my first year, I even prepared the garden area. I was ready.  

But spring came along and I soon discovered my garden plot was at one of the lowest parts of the yard. Because of the lack of drainage there, nothing grew.  

It would have been so easy to give up.  

But my husband took pity on me and helped me find a more suitable place to replant, and my first garden was born.  

The success I saw that first year gave me the energy to keep going, keep learning, and adjust after failures.  

Each year has gotten better and better.

I now grow all of our own tomatoes, beans, peppers, peas, corn, blueberries, herbs and more to last all year plus many other fruits and vegetables we eat seasonally.

Imagine if: could grow many of your favorite vegetables fresh, like tomatoes or zucchini saw your grocery bill decrease month after month because of the food you grew yourself

...your friends started asking you for gardening advice because they saw your success

Gardener Planting Beets

All of this and more can be your reality -- just as it is mine.

But I don't want you to have to spend hours of research like I did. 

I don't want you to experience a devastating setback with your first attempt because you don't know what you don't know. 

I don't want you to attempt something so important to you with no one-on-one guidance. 

This is why I created a step-by-step plan to help beginning gardeners like you plan, plant, and grow your own successful garden.

Leslie H - Beginner's Garden Shortcut Student

I’ve always wanted to have a garden, but the thought was always too overwhelming. Through Jill’s love of research and gardening, she takes you step by step in growing your own garden. The hard work has already been done for you! I love how the class is set up allowing me to work at my own pace and also lets me revisit areas when I need help. To be honest with you, I love this class so much that I save doing it until Sunday afternoons when I can cuddle up with my iPad and the Simple Garden Planner. Thanks to Jill, I’ve not only got a new hobby, but my family will be eating fresh vegetables this summer!

What happens when you enroll?

After you purchase and enroll in the course, you will receive an email with login information for the course. There, you'll gain immediate access to the classroom portal and all of the videos. You can watch them at your own pace.

But, for extra guidance, I will send you two brief emails per week for four weeks, leading you through the garden planning process. Access to the course videos will be provided in each email for your convenience.

Following your enrollment, I will send you a link to schedule your personal coaching call. I will also send you an invitation to the students-only Facebook group. I will stay active in the Facebook Group throughout the season to help answer your questions. My students are my top priority!

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly IS an online course? In an online course, you are taught via recorded video (or written lessons, depending on your preference) just like you would be taught in a formal setting. But you can do it at your own pace.

When does the course start and finish? You will have access to the updated course immediately. It is a self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

How long do I have access to the course? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course through October 31, 2020 - across any and all devices you own.

What if, after purchasing, I decide this course is not for me? My goal is to help you plan and grow your own garden. If you decide this course doesn't meet your expectations, contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.

Is this course just for those who have or want large gardens? Not at all! In fact, my course content will cater more to those with less than 500 square feet of garden space, though those with larger gardens will certainly benefit as well.

I'm worried I won't have time to complete the course AND grow my garden. When you start your planning early, and when you follow my process, you'll find yourself using the time you do have more efficiently. As long as you can spare at least a half hour per week and can grow at least a 4' x 8' space, the Beginner's Garden Shortcut will help you plant, grow, and maintain a garden even if you're managing a busy schedule!

I'm not sure if I can afford it. I get that. I started my first garden primarily to save money. But I can tell you, I spent money I shouldn't have, simply because I didn't know how to grow a garden in the most frugal manner. I have purposefully kept the cost of this course low (most online courses cost $100 at the minimum) so gardeners like you and I could afford it. I am confident that between the content in the course and my advice within the Facebook group, you will save more money than this course costs by following my frugal way of gardening.

Can't I learn how to garden on my own? Yes, you can, just like I did. BUT, by following my process, you'll literally shortcut yourself many steps and save yourself hours of research. Plus, you'll avoid well-meaning but wrong gardening advice available on the Internet.

Will this course apply to me if I live in a different location than you? The biggest strength of my course — and the largest emphasis — is in the planning and preparing, which will apply to every gardener, everywhere. Also, information on plant requirements, plant spacing, and growing techniques — will also apply almost universally. The only areas where you may have to adjust is when I talk about plants that thrive in my location (or not) depending on their growing requirements. The other elements, like mulch, tomato pruning, and irrigation should apply to everyone as well, as will the how-to videos.
